Duplicate Trope: Gut Punch get usage counts

I don't really think so. First off, Player Punch predates Gut Punch by a fair amount of time. Second, again, they're about different things. Player punch is an audience reaction trope that covers an event designed to make the player personally invested in the plot - specifically, in getting revenge on the villain or questioning their own, out-of-game morality. Gut Punch is a single moment in which a work becomes permanently darker. Some player punches are gut punches. Some are not.

Cerebus Instigation? Wham Moment?

Gut Punch just makes me think of somebody getting socked in the gut, which is Chairs.

Let's not make even more Cerebus clones if we don't have to.

No, the other one.
Which is how clones clone themselves.

It has over 100 wicks and inbounds. The name looks fine to me. Is there numerical evidence against it?

Evidently not, since it's been almost a month with no replies. Since this has already been clocked once, I'm locking it as inactive.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
